Long Island Weather Likely Snowy This Week
New Year’s Day is forecast to end in a winter storm on Long Island, where it is unclear how much precipitation may accumulate and whether it will be snow, sleet or rain.
Partly sunny skies in the 30s on New Year’s Eve will drop below freezing Wednesday, when the chance of snow starts after sundown through the next two days, according to Upton-based National Weather Service meteorologists.
“Likelihood is increasing for a prolonged period of snow and/or wintry mix late Wednesday night into Friday,” the agency said in a statement. “Several inches of snow are possible…particularly across the interior. Closer to the coast…accumulating snow could be accompanied by a period of sleet and freezing rain.”
Snow is expected to start again before 2 p.m. Thursday before changing to a combination of snow, freezing rain and sleet when temps dip to a blustery 22 at night.
The chance of snow continues on a windy Friday before mostly sunny skies return Saturday and Sunday, when temps are forecast to hit the 40s.
